Boulevard Chocolate Ale Back After Hiatus

Boulevard Chocolate Ale

One of Boulevard Brewing’s (Kansas City, MO) most sought after beers, Chocolate Ale, has been on hiatus for a little while. The brewery chose to put the beer on hold after discovering the beer’s flavor was found to be a bit off. Boulevard offered refunds to anyone that requested it. Chocolate Ale is back with a sweet vengeance.

Chocolate Ale is a collaboration with Kansas City’s chocolatier Christopher Elbow. Boulevard brewmaster Steven Pauwels and Elbow used a special chocolate variety from the Dominican Republic. The result is a magical and delicious balance of malt, hops and chocolate.

Chocolate Ale is full of surprises, beginning with a glowing amber hue. The aroma is given over to earthy, fruity cocoa, with just a hint of hops. Smooth layers of dark chocolate intertwine with threads of caramel, vanilla, and nutty malt as the flavor warms and rounds to a bittersweet finish.

Boulevard Chocolate Ale is the second release in the Smokestack Series in 2014. January’s release was the barrel aged Rye-on-Rye. While Chocolate Ale  was supposed to hit shelves in Kansas City on Tuesday, snow is keeping the shipments at the brewery a few more days.

Style: American Strong Ale (w/ Chocolate)
Availability: 750ml Bottles, Corked & Caged
Arrival: Mid-February, 2014 (Seasonal Release)

9.1% ABV
